Hey kids! Just wanted to let you know that the Heads Up Studios website had been re-vamped with brand-new art work in the gallery! If you get a second, come on out and give it a look!
I'm Still Here...Howdy kids!
Just wanted to let you all know that I'm still among the living. I plan on being around here a bit more in the very near future after a fairly lengthy absence. Keep an eye peeled for more art! Lots of things to catch up on!
More Heads Up Art on Facebook!Just put up some new art, including some Adventure Time characters done in Heads Up fashion, on the Heads Up Studios Facebook page. Head on over, give us a Like, and check it out! Other characters coming up are Red Hood Jason Todd, Spiral, New 52 Jay Garrick, Zero (Megaman) Tom Hardy Bane, Bizarro Girl, Breaking Bad Walter White, and Arkham Harley Quinn! You won't be disappointed!
New Heads Up Now Showing!Just posted some new Heads Up art, and I hope it was worth the wait. More coming in the next couple of weeks, as well as a sneak peek at the new art book in June!
Back At It Once Again!Howdy, kids!
"Yeah. Now that you knocked the sights off our rifles."
Hey, hey now. I know it's been a while, but let's calm down. There's enough of me to disappoint all of you.
Really, though, being away this long was just what the doctor ordered. I've had a chance to re-charge my batteries over the winter, and gear up for a few cons this year. If you happen to find yourselves with a little free time, head on up to the Motor Ctiy Comic Con in Novi, MI on May 17-19, and visit me in artist alley! The following weekend I'll be in Traverse City, MI for the Cherry Captital Con! I'll have tons of new artwork and previews of my second art book!
More later, including brand new Heads Up art!
Back To Work!Howdy!
Just wanted to let you all know that I'm back to getting some Heads Up finished, but not in the way you think. I've gotten back into painting. Yep. I'm putting some brush to canvas for a series of Heads Up pieces. As soon as they're done, I'll post pictures. And after that, they'll go up for sale.
Why The Hate?Just received an email tonight through my Heads Up Studios website which reads, "Wow, my kid can draw better than this! Is this the limit of your ability? As a real artist, I would be humiliated to have anyone look at my art if this was my art." The person left no name and no email. I'm not going to run to my room crying about it, but it's left me a bit steamed as to why the hate? I didn't force my website on this person. If it wasn't their cup of tea, then move on. To take the time to fill out a false name (What a joke artwork) and false email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then to leave such a comment is irritating and confusing. I walk through artist alleys and see art I don't care for, but I'd never make it a point to go over and tell them personally. I respect the individual doing the art, even though I may not care for it.
Anonymity on the internet breeds this sort of action, and speaks to the true nature of the individual.
The Last Convention...I'll be at Detroit FanFare on October 26-28 in Dearborn, MI. I'll probably be at the Motor City Comic Con in May next year. And I think that may very well be the last con I do.
I was able to walk around the Chicago Comic Con in August for a bit with my son, who is now 11. That was the first time I'd ever been able to walk with him through a show (even though it was only for about a half hour). We had such a great time. I don't think I want to keep doing shows and not be able to take him around to enjoy them properly. I miss it and I want to be able to go to the shows with him. I haven't been able to go to a show as a spectator in about ten years. This art, while I love doing it, has taken me away from both my kids and my wife at times. And I don't like that.
I'm not going to stop this entirely. I'm just not going to let it dominate as much of my time as it did. You've probably already seen that, since I haven't posted much in the last couple of months. Lots of thought has gone into thi
Update!Had a fun time in Chicago last weekend. It was great seeing a bunch of you from deviantArt! I've got ten requests to get to right now, so look for them to be posted after Labor Day, as I'm going on vacation!
Also, who among you would be interested in a 2013 Heads Up Studios calendar? I'll have info on that, as well as pre-order info on "Pizza, Porn, and Santa Claus" coming soon!
Contest Time!Wanna see some new Heads Up art? How about the cover to the new art book? Go "Like" the Heads Up Studios page on Facebook! Wanna request a character done in Heads Up fashion? Then read on!
I'm looking for 100 new "likes" on Heads Up Studios Facebook page. I thought this contest might be a fun way to get them.
Here are the rules. PLEASE READ THE RULES. PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES.
*The first ten people from deviantArt who "like" Heads Up Studios on Facebook that have NOT already done so AND leave me a message there, get to request a character from me! Please post your request HERE on this journal and NOT on Facebook.
*I've picked a number between 1 and 100. The person "liking" Heads Up Studios that corresponds to that number gets a free copy of my second book, "Pizza, Porn and Santa Claus". So just because you're not in the top 10 or you've already "liked" Heads Up Studios, you still have a chance to win!
Finally, one hundred new "likes" gets some brand new (exclusive) art posted here on de
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
